Duration: 2 min's
Silver cylindrical object; no wings; no vapor trail; no sound .

Straight-line flight from NW to SE; silver; no visible wings; no vapor trail; no discernable sound. It passed beneath the dispersed contrail of a jet, but appeared to be at some altitude, maybe 10,000-15,000 feet. Object was about 8 times longer than wide. The rate of passage from my perspective was similar to a jet airplane, but the impression was that it was not being propelled so much as gliding and their were no noise. Weather condition were Clear. This Occured Over the Savannah River Site which is approx. 16 miles south of Aiken SC.
